Network with the Best and Brightest in the Industry

ACRC provides a forum where primary and secondary producers of aluminum and light metals, equipment manufacturers, foundry suppliers and end users come together to discuss the research needed to establish the knowledge base, as well as the educational issues facing the industrial sector.

Members also benefit from tapping into the breadth of knowledge of the faculty, staff and students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).

Current ACRC Members

ACRC members represent the full spectrum of organizations in support of the global foundry industry — primary producers, suppliers, end users, casters, system and component suppliers, service providers, trade associations and national laboratories. 

What Members Say

“Being a member of MPI and ACRC is not only prestigious, it’s personal. It serves as the perfect intersection of “university to industry”, allowing me to dream with the curiosity and open mindedness of a student, while staying grounded with experience and wisdom. In Hinduism, there are four stages of life: Brahmacharya (student), Grihastha (householder), Vanaprastha (retired), and Sannyasa (renunciation). I feel like I have come full circle – learning (Brahmacharya), earning (Grihastha), and now reflecting (toggling between the first three stages with the students and peers at MPI/ACRC). This reflection has turned my experience into insight. If there is one thing I have learned along the path of “life”, it is that while we may strive for mastery, mastery is not a destination but a journey; and we, the eternal students, are the protagonists on this path.”
